Let me just say, for the record, that Yo Gabba Gabba confuses me a little bit. I’ve watched a few episodes with Darah, who was completely hooked on the characters from the moment she first saw them on television. I find them to be bright, cheerful, energetic, and, to be perfectly honest, kind of weird.
But here’s the thing when it comes to children’s entertainment: within reason, it doesn’t matter if I think something is sort of strange. If Darah is enjoying it, that’s the main point. Now, of course, I will always monitor what she watches to make sure it isn’t violent, offensive or something that will completely turn her brain into mush. Yo Gabba Gabba passes my tests in all those departments.
In fact, we’ve been reading the book, “It’s Ok Try Again” that features the Yo Gabba Gabba characters, and Darah has been applying the lesson! When she is struggling with something, I have heard her say out loud to herself, “Try again!” And she’s said it to her dad when she saw him having trouble with something. Pretty cool, huh?
She’s also requested the new DVD, “Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! There’s a Party in My City!” She is allowed a bit of video time every afternoon when her nap time is over, and this DVD has helped her get moving once again. It’s got a lot of songs that encourage your little one to get on their feet and sing and dance. It’s a full-length concert that was filled live, which I think is pretty fun. It definitely gives me a good idea of what it would be like to take Darah to see the group perform. The DVD runs 110 minutes and is available for just $12.99. You can find it at major retailers such as Walmart, Kmart, Target and Toys R Us. It can also be found online!
